Visiting and Photographing Glacier National Park
Additional locations for incredible photographs are Lake Sherburne, Mount Oberlin, Clements Mountain, Hidden Lake, Wild Goose Island, Saint Mary Lake, Mount Grinnell, Mount Wilbur, Swiftcurrent Lake, Sunrift Gorge, Saint Mary Falls, Hanging Valley, Trail of the Cedars, Avalanche Creek, McGee Meadows and many others.
Glacier National Park is referred to as the Jewel of the Continent. What a perfect phrase. Let’s dig a little deeper into the many reasons to visit and photograph there.
Of all the heavily traveled National Parks, it's probably further away from large population areas than most of the others. Kalispel, Montana is the closest airport of note, but it’s not an area of large population. Cities like Spokane, Washington or Bozeman, Montana are about a 6 hour drive away.
The famous Going To The Sun Road that crosses over the park though the mountains is only open from late June to late September, depending on the road being cleared of snow or covered by snow. As a result, those are the best months to be there.
The west side of the park is all about Lake McDonald. If you’re not into photography, there are a multitude of boating, swimming, fishing and water related activities that can fill an entire vacation.
The views of the mountains surrounding Lake McDonald are astounding. There are an almost unlimited number of locations from both sides of the lake to photograph it from. During the Spring, when the mountains still have plenty of snow on them, is on my list as a time to go. I don’t think it is very crowded then.
As you head up the road to Logan Pass, you come first to the Trail of the Cedars and Avalanche Creek. The big Cedar trees are impressive, and the bright aqua-colored water in Avalanche Creek begs to be photographed. The Creek cuts through the rock providing a miniature canyon effect.
As you continue up to Logan Pass, there are many photographic opportunities of the mountains and canyons. My favorite subject is this area is Mount Oberlin. A little ways before Logan Pass is an overlook and parking area called Big Bend. The flowers are usually here in late July and August. This is such a fun area to get out and explore. Great photographs are everywhere.
The Going To The Sun Road crests at Logan Pass. What a place to soak up the views! If you don’t mind a moderate hike, the trail up to Hidden Lake is great early in the morning with the sun shining on Bearhat Mountain. It can be a little chilly and windy up there, so go prepared.
As the road makes its way to St. Mary, there is a nice trail to St. Mary Falls. About in the middle of Saint Mary Lake, is a stunning view of the mountains behind the lake with Wild Goose Island in the middle of the lake. This is the iconic view from the east side of the park.
North of St. Mary is the road to Swiftcurrent Lake. Behind the Many Glacier Hotel are iconic photo opportunities with reflections of Mount Grinnell and Mount Wilbur. These are best photographed during a calm morning with the sun rising behind you. Just watch the forecast and plan accordingly.
South from St. Mary is Two Medicine Lake. It’s a long way down there and be aware of horses and cows in the road as it is open range territory. Like Swiftcurrent, it would be an early morning opportunity.
There are other locations, but these are some of the best ones from my experience. It’s a fabulously beautiful park and worth every bit of effort it takes to get there. I would be happy if you would consider one of my photographs as a reminder of your time there.
